International Student Responsibilities


All students must adhere to the University’s rules and regulations. Failure to comply with these rules and regulations may result in the termination of your studies.

All students must attend their lectures, and to place a note on MyBangor if for any reason they are unable to attend the lecture.

Students must notify us via MyBangor when they will be travelling to another country, even if they are to travel during times when they do not have any lectures such as Summer Holidays for Undergraduate Students.

Students must live within an hour travelling distance from Bangor. Failure to do so may result in the termination of your studies. Students who are Tier 4 must adhere to this.

Students who wish to change their address must do so on MyBangor and notify us. Students are also required to notify the police when they change address.
If there is a change in a student’s circumstances the Immigration Team are required to notify the Home Office of any changes which may include Temporary Suspensions, Change of Course and Withdrawals.

It is best practice to contact either ourselves (immigration@bangor.ac.uk) or the International Education Centre (international@bangor.ac.uk) if you are unsure of anything.

Attendance Monitoring

Attendance with the University is highly important. Please familiar yourselves with the Monitoring and Escalation Procedure.

If you do not attend a lecture for any reason, please make a note of this on MyBangor under Online Services and Attendance.

If you do not make a note in MyBangor an email will be sent to you.

Should your attendance continue to be an issue, actions will be taken with Stage’s 2 and 3 emails.

Stage 4 will result in your withdrawal from your studies.

If you have an issue with your attendance due to certain circumstances, we have a dedicated team within the University who are happy to help students. They are known as Student Services and can be found in the Rathbone Building: studentservices@bangor.ac.uk

Bangor University (BU) is committed to excellence in education, and to supporting progression and achievement of students. We therefore expect all our students to attend lectures and other teaching events.

Regular monitoring of student attendance allows BU to identify students who are in need of guidance or support and to direct them to the most appropriate department or service within BU. BU monitors both Home/EU student attendance, and also Tier 4 Visa students' attendance and engagement in particular, in accordance with the requirements of the UK Visa & Immigration Authority.

What do I do if I have lost my Passport/ Visa/ BRP Card?
